breast augmentation 10 years after

Here are the current pics. Excuse the bathroom selfie. I can't find before pics. I will post one from 18mon post op

11 days post op

Ok. Sooo after 3 CG. That sizing is crazy o started with an abdomen wrap. Then purchased a halter faja. Tried the 1 piece romper. Umm yeah well its ripped in pieces and in the trash. Day 10 yesterday I purchased a homedics massager from bed bath and beyond. Its awesome. Bruising is almost gone. Vajay jay swelling has decrease. Incision sites on hips are sore. I think from the CG not covering that far. Scabs have fallen off. Upper back is sore I take advil for that. Massage daily at min 45mins b4 bed. Im still.swollen and today im.bloated. pre.menstrual. so I look bigger than day 2 post op. My waist at navel is a 34. But my 7 jean shorts are a size 32 and fit with the gap in the back :) I have several lumps and knots around my navel. They sometimes have sharp pains. I see some unleveled areas. I started using the lipo foam. The CG created an indentation in my lower abs so im trying to correct that b4 its permanent. Follow up visit scheduled In.4 weeks. Skin feels really tight and its difficult to stretch. I use the faja during the day and the ab wrap at night. Im moving around. I can drive. But taking this last week to just relax b4 heading back into the office. I attached a photo grid from day 1 till today and my wish pic. I think ill look better than my wish pic though. Lol.

It's great to hear from someone who still loves their breast augmentation 10 years later! That's fantastic you're still enjoying your results. Do you feel like your breasts have changed a little bit over the years? I know gravity can take a small toll but I've heard women with saline sometimes say their implants have a very slow and barely detectable leak over time. Do you feel like you're still the same size or slightly different from 10 years ago? Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf!

Honestly beth they have changed quite a bit lol. Im.now 38. Hv gained weight. But coming from a 36 b. I love my new 38dd. They have dropped significantly but a natural drop. The perky upright d cups were great in my 20's based on the work I was doing. They are now not 100% symmetrical but thats the beauty of them. No ones natural breast are. Ill post a pic. I was trying to pull from my gallery on my phone. But its only allowing me to take a new pic

Yes, you're right. No one is perfectly symmetrical. I think you look natural in your photo and your scars are barely visible. Thanks for posting the photos...you look great!
